Report from the Sea Ray booth on the Cannes Boat Show
Share

For 40 years, the Cannes Boat Show has been one of the most popular events in the world of yachting, impressing guests every year with its scale: five kilometers of berths and pontoons represent more than 800 yachts built in shipyards in 35 countries. In the yachting industry, the size and wow-effect of the booth at the Cannes show is a measure of business success.

It is no wonder that the American brand Sea Ray, which produces modern exclusive boats and yachts, took the opportunity to make a name for itself once again in Cannes. Sea Ray boats are widely represented in the Russian market. In particular, the brand has recently added to the portfolio of Burevestnik Group, the largest yachting holding in Russia.

At Sea Ray's booth, visitors could sunbathe on the sun beds of the Sundancer 320, discover the amazing features of the new SLX 310 digital touchscreen display and explore all the many outboards of the SDX 290 OB (Outboard) multi-purpose sports boat.

The new Sundancer 320 is a beautiful and elegant modern boat with unique features due to its amazing balance of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The model is aimed primarily at those who enjoy spending time on deck. The unique design expands the possibilities of organizing the space on the 10.31 m long boat. The key point here is the integration of the forward deck and its integration with the cockpit. A teak-lined aisle will lead you directly to the bow of the boat, where you can enjoy sunbathing on luxurious seats and sun beds.

The cockpit offers enormous space for imagination. The dining table folds out to become a cushion support, easily turning the cockpit seat into an extra sunbathing area. A retractable sun awning is an option, but it is worth considering if you want to make the steering wheel seat open to the sun on a warm summer day.

The SLX 310 is a spacious and functional boat, which was presented at the exhibition in Hard-Top version.

Space and comfort blend together in a boat. The comfortable seating area includes seats with folding backs, a large cockpit and a place for the helmsman. The sofa easily transforms into a luxury sunbathing area for those who want to be closer to nature. The sunshade is retractable and the awning is electrically powered. On board there is a mini barbecue with grill, an amazing stone worktop, a sink and a fridge. At the stern, as well as at the bow, there is a shower and a ladder for boarding.

Among the main innovations is a completely renewed digital dashboard with touch screen for SLX series boats. Touch-screen control of all boat systems will be appreciated by those who like to keep up with the times. Navigation, music and all of the boat's parameters on one monitor is a convenient and practical solution that allows you to control the situation literally at the click of a fingertip.

The third model - SDX 290 OB - provides a sea of possibilities for leisure planning.

It has a convenient central console and a lot of additional storage places where you can fold, including equipment for wakeboarding and water skis. To further enhance the quality of outdoor activities on the water, an optional tower with integrated bimini awning is available. In addition to the convenient wakeboarding halyard, it also makes sure that the driver does not get sunstroke while skiing. There are sunbeds on the transom for a more relaxed rest.

The overall advantage of Sea Ray boats is the modern navigation equipment with wide-band and fish-finding echo sounder, which can be installed at the owner's request directly in the factory, ensuring the following perfect operation during the whole period of operation.
